Visualizing long-term urbanization and land development in Spain (1900-2020)
Animated data visualizations highlighting long-term urbanization and land development in Spain, using data from the Historical Settlement Data Compilation for Spain (HISDAC-ES) (10.6084/m9.figshare.22009643).
These animations provide unprecedented insight in the evolution of Spanish cities and settlements, over extended time periods and at fine spatial and temporal granularity.
The underlying gridded data layers from HISDAC-ES have been created from publicly available cadastral data (i.e., building footprint data plus construction year information).
